What We Do

We’re changing the way you hire

Diversifying the Pipeline

Stellarworx helps employers take the guesswork out of inclusive hiring. When employers choose to remove college degree requirements from their job listings, they create a more level playing field for the more than 70 million STARs that represent a significant share of all regions, races, ethnicities, genders, and generations across the United States.

Every job seeker on Stellarworx is a STAR, and every STAR that gets hired is a step toward rewiring the labor market so it works better for all.

Power of Three

We connect the dots between the organizations that train STARs, the companies that want to hire STARs, and STARs with high-demand skills to get the job done.

Improving Efficiency

An employer seeking to fill an entry-level tech role could spend six months to 2.5 years identifying and building trust with a quality talent developer. Stellarworx speeds up this process, so that employers can more easily connect with the right talent developer and more quickly discover their next STAR employee.
